night. make sure you go to gretawire.com. tell us what you thought about tonight's show. there is lots to talk about. good night from washington. to? tonight at 8:00. >> eric: hello, i'm eric bolling with andrea tantaros, bob beckel,be dana perino and gregreg gutfeld is back! it's 5:00 in new york city. this is "the five." ♪ ♪ >> eric: as expected, president become become used kids as backdrop addressing the american people on the plans for a new gun control. here he is. just hours ago. >> these are smart letters from some pretty smart young people. hennah a third grader. you can wave. that's you. henna wrote, i feel terrible for the parents who lost their
children. i love my country and i want everyone to be happy and safe. grant -- go ahead and wave, grant. grant said i think there should be some changes. learn from what happened at sandy hook. i feel really bad. >> eric: the president outlined a series of proposals including closing background check loopholes,be banning military style assault weapons and high capacity magazines, making schools safer and increasing access to mental health services. he then signed 23 separate executive actions. so let's start with the emotional appeal first. we'll get to the proposals in a second. what do you think about the president using kids as a backdrop. take it around the table, starting with you, ange. >> andrea: it's a p.r. stunt. whether it's a shrewd one or not. the publicbe will decide. it did think it was a little obviousbe when he released the letters to the children to the
"associated press" before the press conference. one from a girl named julia. it seemed sophisticated for a young girl to write. it said i know you are supposed to go through congress but i'd like you to get something done for the united states. tough to be against a letter like that. >> eric: look, they want to sustain the momentum, as tragic as it is, off of what happened in newtown. these are kids the age of kids killed there. reading the letter is smart thing to do. >> dana: it probably helps him for 24-hour news cycle. one thing he said after newtown shooting it was one of the toughest days of the presidency. letters from all sorts of people and walks of life and
the age group,be they help them make a point. instead of signing the executive orders is weak tea. i would be surprised if they actually helped prevent one of the shootings like newtown shooting. >> eric: we'll get proposals in a second. what about using kids as backdrop? >> greg: the left pioneered this. they love to use kids as props, unless it's pro-life rally. then it's uncomfortable when you see kids alive. that scares them. you can't argue with the children's logic, because they never say anything bad. you don't want kids running anything. if you read "lord of the flies" you know children don't make sound decisions if you give them power. it's way to create emotion because nobody except for a jerk like me will call them on
it. it is a p.r. stunt. is it a shield that keeps the critics from coming at them. the fact is they have never done it at a pro-life rally so i don't buy it. >> andrea: how many letters do you think they got from kids asking for protection. how many letters did they get on obamacareing can him not to do that? got lost. >> let's talk about the proposals. four proposals we put up. like we said, 23 executive actions. i'm not sure what the rest of them is. this is weak. dabs maybe they think these are things that could help either clarify things or stopping being duplicative. others argue on the right that this is a slippery slope to more gun control, even though the supreme court affirmed twice in five years that
individual right to own a gun is constitutional and has been upheld. >> eric: i don't know how you call it weak. >> eric: a chunk is mental health on that. the other thing is changing information about guns between states. 17 states won't allow any information to go out. there is also exchanging medical information. strong stuff in that. >> eric: can i ask about this one? number 18. providing incentives to hire school resource officers. does it mean putting a gun in the school? >> andrea: i don't mind that one as much. but it should be up to the locality and the school if they want to arm the schoolles. different school districts have different needs. it want to respond to something that bob said. if i were a doctor right now, i would be petrified, all the deputizing doctor talk.
there is huge privacy issues. the common thread is everyone that did the massacre is very troubled. if you are a doctor you have to rat out patients. if you don't, you could be libel. so you want to get all the people mentally insane to the doctor's office, not drive them away from the doctor. there are a lot of people out there that will say i'm not going to see a doctor. no way, i don't want my name in a mental -- >> bob: there is a law to require doctors turnbe over information for someone who will complete a crime. >> eric: if you put it in writing, go to the doctor, the doctor doesn't put him on a registry. he goes out to kill someonebe. the family of the victims say hey, the doctor, didn't put him on the registry. sue the doctor. >> andrea: or a lot of doctors will probably say i don't want to treat mentally insane people. the liability. >> eric: whether they will get any of the major things through congress or 23
executive action. >> greg: it was 23, right? it reminds me when i used to go to a supermarket to buy 23 items and n order to mass it can one embarrassing item i didn't want anybod see. so i'd have lightbulbs, scotch tape and the laxative or something hidden. if you wantbe the most useful thing is the one that the aclu hates, the law. in school shootings they're wounded before the police arrives so they are acting against is the action the only thing to save lives, which is police protection. a war between two cultures. media enclave that sees gun owner a ruse. even though gun could protect you. for rest of america gun is the
tool the way new yorker's xanax prescription is a tool. >> bob: what is about the four things? i understand why the assault weapon probably can't get through. but the ten maximum clip? who in the right mind is againstbe that? you are discussing after the factbe tragedy. they shoot seven instead of ten so the solution is the police officer to know how to use a gun and prevent it from happening. pull up the picture of the two guns. one is assault weapon. one is a ban and one isn't. the difference is the pistol on the top. they will been a the gun because they have a pistol grip. it has the same gun. the next full screen, in this one, we talk about this before. if there is any question whether or not more guns or fewer guns means less crime, here it is again. 20 year period, the latest
available data, 49% decrease in the violent crime. 49% decrease in murder rate. over about the same period of time. even a shorter period of time. the number of fire arms in american hands doubled. >> andrea: your point they are going after the wrong guns. if they want to do something, most crimes and most murders happen in 2011, 6,000 deaths were handgun and rifle. they're not evenbe talking about that. >> eric: no, no. >> bob: it's bull. >> eric: it's not bull. >> bob: give credit to police and the f.b.i. >> eric: we have to get it in there. this is important. this is a piece of the add. watch this. >> are the president's kids more important than yours? why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schools when his kids are protected by armed guards at their school? mr. obama demands the wealthy
pay their fair share of taxes but he is just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to fair share of security. protext for their kids -- protection for their kids and gun-free zone for ours. >> eric: bobbe, start that. >> bob: there is the punk ad. terrible ad. i made ads for years and that thingbe doesn't deserve to be on television. look he got in things that had nothing to do with guns. they went after obama's kids. >> greg: no, they didn't. >> eric: they didn't. >> bob: yes, they did. >> greg: no, no no, no. >> bob: you interrupted me. >> greg: i'm going to interrupt you again. i said this points two weeks ago. when rahm emanuel was going off aboutbe guns his kids are protected at a school. same with obama's kids. same with david gregory's kids. obama could have won over a lot of people if he said i want every child to be as safe as mine. that means to have security. that's all he has to say. he didn't say that. everybody had the right to have their kids as safe as president obama's. that is not a cheap ad. that is a factual ad. >> bob: they should have protection, secret service,
every child has that. >> eric: we are talking about -- >> bob: this is a quaker school that does not have armed guards. >> eric: they have security. >> bob: not armed guards. >> andrea: aclu says this infringes on the kid's rights. how? the right to get shot up by a mad man? you can't take it seriously. >> eric: we have to leave it there. it saw the ad, dramatic and provocative. that's what they were going for. before we go, breaking news. this is very important. i'm told senator rand paul will introduce language within hours,be within hours to call for the nullification and prohibition of funding for the president's executive actions,be announced today. possibly evenbe using the federal courts to nullify and defund some of the things. that is coming out and should break any minute now. coming up, did president obama call out fox news in the gun control press conference? we have the tape, coming up next. ♪ ♪
♪ ♪ >> greg: so i read obama's executive actions on guns and i noticed there was something missing. quentin tarantino. didn't joe's task force meet with the movie industry? i guess it's the hollywood lobby, not the gun lobby that flexes the real muscles here. the last flicks were revenge fantasies, historical fiction where the victims murdered the oppressors to a cheering audience. one had jews killing nazis. i haven't seen "jango unchained" but i'm sure they weren't cheering for a national conversation. why is it cool for hollywood to embrace fearless populus but if you do it's nuts? the idea is the same. it's cool to fight back. i am not advocating armed uprising, i'm too lazy. but the suspicions concerning the efforts to disarm them but at the time you act in a manner to disarm them makes
you the villain. fearless populist helps keep a government honest which may be why eric holder wants gun owners to cower like smokers. we have seen the movie before. with the same fake actors. it doesn't end well. as usual, the audience is taken while the celebrities returned to the armed bodyguard and do what they really do best. swap coke dealers and hepatitis. in the seven-page executive summary they relegated movies to one mention. they called on all americans to do more. it's up to us. >> eric: do more of what? >> dana: i was surprised they didn't have anything in there. i was thinking about the shooter's mother who was trying to get help for her son. worried about it and i don't see anything in this, maybe i'm wrong but maybebe in the list there is a mental health services, medicaid plan thing
must cover -- i think that we could possibly be missing an opportunity to figure out a way to help these moms and dads worried that kids have something seriously wrong with them and they're about to crack. >> eric: i'm reading through the 23, greg. they are really logical stuff like yeah, make sure the back ground checks are right. this is nothing more or less than obama using tragedy to promote ideology. the first things he recommends that congress do will never fly. on the fly, here you go. why don't you vote in the senate first. we can all see whose hands go up and says i'm for the things he recommended.
>> bob: are you against background checks? >> eric: no. we do them. >> bob:be we don't do them. >> dana: not doing them well is different that not doing them. >> bob: trying to tighten up the rules aboutbe the mental health and exchange the information. one thing the cdc,be republican congress saw fit to cut their funding but they would be back dealing with what gun control -- i mean what gun advocacy has done to the guys that have the mental illnesses. >> andrea: gun advocacy? >> bob: the gun advocates are againstbe the cdc having the money to do a study with the mental health information. >> another washington study. you don't need a washington study to figure out a lot of the killers were loners, that weren't included. maybe the recommendation should be simple as if you see somebody, alone on the
playground as a kid, maybe invite them to the circle. don't isolate them. i don't know. >> bob: what is your answer to the mental health problem? >> dana: it's not her responsibility to come up with an answer. >> andrea: i don't think there is one single answer. i don't think it's an easy solution. i can look at all the things on the list and say i don't think it will cut it. in the words of rob low, i don't think hollywood, as he said, should be lecturing the american people on guns. if you are supportive, you have a right to not be supportive but you should be troubled how the president is doing this. this is not passing through congress. >> dana: to the monologue point, where you talk about buying the 23 items.
and hide the one. so i could have satisfaction of crossing something off the list and i'd add it to. number 11 is nominate atf director. why do you write an order to tell yourself to nominate somebody you should have nominated already? >> greg: that was a better metaphor than mine. >> dana: you have been gone for a while. >> andrea: but wants it to look like a really long list. a lot don't make sense. national data base for something --be >> bob: how about that for an idea? national data base of guns so people register their guns. >> andrea: do you think lanza would have said before i go to the style i'll put my name in a gun data bis or the colorado shooter? >> bob: why not? they'd have to. they'd have to. >> andrea: they have to? they follow the law very well. >> bob: you have to understand argument about
whether mental helicopter should be part of this. quarter of this is aboutbe the mental health. >> eric: challenge the democrats. the democrats have the senate. go ahead, harry reid, bring it up for a vote. are you in favor of all president obama's recommendations? pass it through the senate first and let the house do it. that would be interesting if he does that. i think he was an nra backed candidate, too,be if i'm not mistaken. >> greg: do i have time to throw to the sot? we're doing it in the next block? great to be back. >> dana: people talking to you in your head. >> greg: it's happening again. i have to get out of here. coming up, should a reality show that features one father who has 11 kids with ten different women called beckel be on television? we told you about --be go ahead. >> two boys, you know, take responsibility. you can hate all you want to. i didn't ask for it. i just happened. >> greg: we told you about "all my babies' mommas" last weekbe but the network changed

>> this will be difficult. they will warn of ta tyrannical all-assault on liberty. not because it's true but they want to gin up fear for higher ratings or revenue for themselves. make sure nothing changes whatsoever. >> andrea: all right. so that was a little tasteless at a press conference like that. the economy is hurting. i want to read a couple of headlines on the economy to give you pause while the fun debate is going on. one, ranks of working poor is increasing. workers are raiding the funds to pay the bills.
thaw may downgrade the united states. greg, does he not want to deal with this? >> greg: this is a real issue. this speaks to two different cultures in the united states. it's a prescription of xanax. you can have your gun, protection and security. lefties like john stewart paint gun owners as paranoid, the same time on sunday that bob schieffer likens obama's battle against the fun owners as a fight against the nazis. if you are in a country that the administration accuses you of ginning up propaganda and the media citing with you to call you nazis, your paranoia
might be justified. >> andrea: this is on the heels of white house telling paul ryan it won't meet a budget deadline. 1300 days we still don't a budget. he is saying i've been busy. sorry, i wouldn't get to the budget thing. as i mentioned in the "a" block, president obama said newtown, connecticut, was the hardest day of his presidency. we sat around for a week and not only us but others saying we need to do something. the approach i would have suggested, is to try to figure out a way to make some of this bipartisan at the outset and do the executive orders on the back end of that effort. instead he put the cart in front of the horse, now the
horse won'tbe go anywhere. >> andrea: he hasn't cut spending at all. it's not even on the radar screen. >> eric: i don't think this is a distraction. this is an important time, not only in the legacy but america. he said, here i come. get ready, ready to fundamentally transform america. this was right before he started in 2009. october of 2008. rahm emanuel said don't let a good tragedy go to waste because you can do things to fundamentally transform america. he is taking the tragedy, the sandy hook tragedy and using it to do what he promised, told us he would transform america. he has done nothing but trample on the constitution. >> andrea: he also told us he would balance the budget,be grow the economy, he cut spending. bob, i want you to react to this recent gallop poll that shows still, even though the safety of kids should be top
of the list, americans believe economy is top of the list. all of those things are in big, big trouble. >> bob: it's up there with taxes. healthcare. immigration. education is below it. >> andrea: he can't do both or he won't? >> bob: first, you listen to these things the reason we're in trouble is the republicans refuse, they are holding us hostage on that. >> dana: that is not fair and it's not true. >> bob: it is too true. if they would come up dopped the right thing. >> dana: was it true in 2007 when obama voted against -- >> bob: i talked about this. a bad mistake to do it now. no it's the republicans fault? it is the republicans fault. unemployment increase for 15 straight months, manufacturing up. trade up.
